    As you might (or not) know, Scorched Earth was created by a single person, namely Wendell Hicken. That fact alone is pretty cool imho!

    I just found an interview with him from back in 2005, which I wanted to share with you guys: https://arstechnica.com/features/2005/03/scorched/

    Interesting interview, thanks for sharing 🙂

    My favorite part (the last sentence in particular):

    > Once I had a reasonably workable version, some friends installed it at the school dorms. Each house had a small room full of computers (6 to 10), and many hours which should have been studying were annihilated by Scorch parties. I left pen and paper for people to write down ideas, and many of the weapons came out of that.
